The Walrus is Lennon.Why?

Because he sings 'I AM the walrus'.

(It isn't McCartney because he also sings 'The walrus WAS Paul'.)

So it WAS Paul now it IS John.

Paul was wearing the walrus costume in the video for I Am The Walrus.

So it's Paul.

Wow! I'm surprised that somebody got that right. It was made to look as if Paul was turned around but he wasn't. when the news got out about the truth it was rumerd that Paul was dead.

Question 3
What previosly written song by the Beatles is song by Ringo at the end of All You Need Is Love?

Actually, it IS Paul, standing on a box. Outtakes from the photo session show this.

The Mal Evans rumor surfaced many years ago, and has been well and truly put to rest.

And about the Walrus: it was John (of course). John was just joking around in Glass Onion. In "God" he sings "I was the Walrus".

Well Patton: you got that wrong about Paul. Tsk :)

Question 3: Ringo sings nothing at the end of All You Need Is Love! Are you thinking of She Loves You? John seems to be singing that (though many think it's Paul: that's a big controversy among some people). But Ringo sings nowt!

Yeah, I've seen pictures where Paul is turned slightly towards the camera and you can see his face - but I was always under the impression that the back cover photo was taken on a seperate occasion. Thanks for clearing that up Maria :)

Yeah I've read all that about who sings She Loves You at the end!! What a nightmare! I think it was decided that Paul sang the first line and John joined in on the second - I think that's right!

The only other Beatle song featured at the end of All You Need Is Love is Yesterday - John sings just that word on two occasions I believe.

I agree with you Maria - I don't think Ringo sang anything.

Hey, I know who the Walrus really is. It's the Carpenter's friend. You know, that famous pair: the Walrus & the Carpenter, who ate the oysters.

It's true, it's true!

Oh yeah - Lewis Carrol! He was one of John's favourite authors and that's where the Walrus idea came from.

At the end of All You Need is Love, Ringo sings 'I Am the Walrus' with his back to the camera.
Three points to me.

I'm sorry I might have got some of the info wrong. These previous questions were ones asked by friends of mine(I guess i'll have a little talk with them). I never actually looked it up. So to be fair I'll restat with info that I have looked up. Any objections? :-/
So here it goes

Question 1
What is Ringo's real name?
